Adapted from James Franco’s short stories and told in three acts (each following a different fifth-grade boy), this quiet, contemplative film focuses on suburban Palo Alto in 1985 as a mountain lion skulks around the edge of town. Franco gives one of his most subtle performances yet as a recovering-alcoholic father, and the three young newcomers’ performances are honest and affecting, capturing what it feels like to be adrift and on the verge of adolescence.
